Our Doctrinal Statement

Emmanuel Bible Church is deeply committed to the absolute authority of the Bible. We are convinced that the Bible is the only trustworthy standard of what we should believe and how we should live. Our ultimate priority is to glorify God by faithfully proclaiming the truth of His Word so that people can clearly understand it and practically apply it to their lives.

The following is a summary of the major theological truths that the Bible teaches organized into seven basic categories:

  • The Bible
  • God
  • Man and Sin
  • Salvation
  • The Church
  • Angels
  • Last Things

These are the primary doctrines of the Christian faith and they reflect what we teach at Emmanuel Bible Church.

We acknowledge there are differences in how believers understand some of the doctrines set forth in this document; and we acknowledge the limited understanding we have in regard to these divine truths as well. We humbly place this document under the Word of God and commit ourselves to updating it as the Spirit gives more light through the study of His Word. John 17:17

The Bible

We teach that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man and thus the sixty-six books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute the plenary (inspired equally in all parts) Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Exodus 4:12; Exodus 17:14; Exodus 20:1; Jeremiah 30:2; Jeremiah 31:2; Mark 12:36; Luke 24:27; Acts 3:19-22; John 16:12-13; 1 Timothy 5:18; 2 Peter 3:14-16; Revelation 22:18)

We teach that the Word of God is an objective, propositional revelation (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Corinthians 2:13), verbally inspired in every word, (Mathew 5:18; Mark 12:26-27; Galatians 3:16; 2 Timothy 3:16) absolutely inerrant in the original documents, infallible, and God breathed. (2 Timothy 3:16; John 3:31-34; John 16:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Exodus 34:1,27-28; Deuteronomy 17:18; Jeremiah 36:28) The Bible is fully self-authenticating, not relying on any external proof for its claims. (Psalm 19:7-11; 119:152; Matthew 5:17-18; Matthew 13:40-41; John 14:6; John 15:26; John 17:17; Luke 4:27; 2 Timothy 3:16; Titus 1:2)

We teach the literal, grammatical, and historical interpretation of Scripture which affirms the belief that the opening chapters of Genesis present creation in six literal twenty-four-hour days. (Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:5; Genesis 1:8; Genesis 1:13; Genesis 1:19; Genesis 1:23; Genesis 1:31; Exodus 20:11; Exodus 31:17)

We teach that the Bible constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and practice. (Matthew 5:18; Matthew 24:35; John 10:35; John 16:12-13; John 17:17; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Titus 1:2; John 14:6; John 15:26) The Scriptures are completely sufficient for life and godliness (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:2-11) and should not be adulterated by mixture with human schemes of thought. (2 Corinthians 4:1-2, 2 Corinthians 10:4-6, 2 Timothy 4:1-5, Colossians 2:3-9)

We teach that God spoke in His written Word by a process of dual authorship. The Holy Spirit so superintended the human authors that, through their individual personalities and different styles of writing, they composed and recorded God’s Word to man (1 Corinthians 2:6-13; 2 Peter 1:20-21) without error in the whole or in the part. (2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 5:18; Mark 12:26-27; Mark 35-37)

We teach that, whereas there may be several applications of any given passage of Scripture, there is but one true interpretation. (John 1:18) This one true interpretation is the intended meaning of the author and it is found as one diligently applies the literal, grammatical, historical method of interpretation under the illumination of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:21-23; Matthew 2:6-7; Mark 12:26-27; Mark 12:35-37; John 7:17; John 16:12-15; Acts 2:25-31; 7, 1 Corinthians 2:7-15; Galatians 3:16; 1 John 2:20) It is the responsibility of all believers to ascertain carefully the true intent and meaning of Scripture, recognizing that proper application is binding on all generations. (Ezra 7:10; Nehemiah 8; Psalm 78:1-5; Psalm 89:1; Psalm 119:27, 33; John 14:15; Acts 17:11; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:19-25; 1 Peter 2:1-3; Revelation 1:3) Yet the truth of Scripture stands in judgment of men; never do men stand in judgment of it. (Psalm 119:89, Matthew 4:4, Matthew 5:17-18, John 10:34-35, 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Peter 1:23-25)

The Triune Nature of God. We teach that there is but one true and living God, (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-7; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6) an infinite, eternal, all-knowing Spirit, (Psalm 145:3; Isaiah 40:28; 1 Kings 8:27; John 5:26; Psalm 90:2; Psalm 147:4; Psalm 139:1-4; Isaiah 40:28; John 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17) who is transcendent, unchanging, and perfect in all His attributes. (1 Samuel 2:2; Psalm 99; Isaiah 57:15; Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29; James 1:17; Deuteronomy 32:4; Psalm 145:17)

We teach that He is one, eternally existing divine entity or essence who is manifested concurrently in three distinct Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 6:27; John 8:24; John 8:58; 1 Corinthians 3:16; John 10:30; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Romans 8:9; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; Genesis 1:1-2; Psalm 33:6; John 1:3; John 14:16-23; 2 Corinthians 13:14) each equally deserving of reverence, worship, and obedience. (Matthew 22:37; John 4:24; Philippians 2:9-11; John 5:23; John 14:21; John 20:28; Hebrews 1:6; Revelation 4:8-11; Revelation 5:11-14; Colossians 3:17; John 16:7-15; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18; Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 3:3) He exhibits an array of attributes or peculiarities which define His existence and constitute His character. (Exodus 34:5-7; Deuteronomy 7:9-10; Deuteronomy 32:3-4; Psalm 145:8-21) Certain attributes are unique to God alone (i.e. omniscience, omnipotence, eternality, self-existence, immutability, etc.), and are therefore described as incommunicable attributes. There are however communicable attributes which, to a limited degree, He bestows upon His creatures and which man can reflect (i.e.: justice, grace, mercy, love, faithfulness, etc.).

God the Father. We teach that God the Father, the first Person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace. (Psalm 145:8-9; Isaiah 45:5-7; Isaiah 46:9-11; Isaiah 55:10-11; Daniel 4:17; Daniel 4:35; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 1:1; Ephesians 1:5)

We teach that He is the Architect and Creator of all things. (Genesis 1:1-31; Psalm 33:6; Ephesians 3:9) As the only absolute and omnipotent Ruler in the universe, He is sovereign in creation, providence, and redemption. (Psalm 103:19; Psalm 135:8; Isaiah 46:9-11; Daniel 4:35; Romans 11:33-36; Ephesians 1:4-5)

We teach that His Fatherhood involves both His designation within the Trinity and His relationship with mankind. As their Creator He is Father to all men, (Acts 17:25-29) but He is the spiritual Father only to believers. (Romans 8:14; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 4:6) He has decreed all things that come to pass will be for His own glory. (Ephesians 1:11-12) He continually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and events in perfection. (Genesis 50:20; Deuteronomy 8:18; 1 Samuel 2:6-10; Job 38-39; 1 Chronicles 29:11; Psalm 33:14-15; Proverbs 16:1; Proverbs 16:33; Proverbs 20:24; Proverbs 21:1; Matthew 10:29; Romans 8:28; Galatians 4:4)

We teach that in His sovereignty He is neither author nor approver of sin, nor does He diminish the accountability of moral, intelligent humanity. (Habakkuk 1:13; Psalm 5:4-6; Acts 4:27-28; James 1:13-15; John 8:38-47; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 1:5)

We teach that He has chosen or predestined or foreordained some people to eternal life through Jesus Christ to the praise of His glorious grace and love, (Ephesians 1:4-6) others being left to continue in their sin to their just condemnation, to the praise of His glorious justice. (Romans 9:22-23; Jude 4)

We teach that He made this choice in eternity past not because He was persuaded by anything in the person He foresaw in the future, but according to His eternal purpose and the holy counsel of His will, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:4-6; Ephesians 1:9; Ephesians 1:11-12; Matthew 24:22; Matthew 24:24; Matthew 24:31; Luke 18:7; John 13:18; Romans 8:29-33; Romans 9:11-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Colossians 3:12; 2 Timothy 1:8-9; 2 Timothy 2:10; Titus 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1-2; Revelation 13:8)

We teach that those persons the Father has chosen for eternal life, He will effectually call in His appointed time by His Word and Spirit, to come to Him for salvation, (Acts 13:48; Romans 8:30; 11:5-7; 1 Corinthians 1:2,9,26-31; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; 2 Peter 1:3; Jude 1) regenerating their dead hearts; (John 3:1-7; Ezekiel 36:25-27; Ephesians 2:1-6; 1 Peter 1:23-25) enlightening their minds spiritually and savingly to understand the things of God; (Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4-6; Ephesians 1:17-19) renewing their wills; (Jeremiah 32:39; Ezekiel 36:25-27; John 6:35-37) and by His sovereign power and grace effectually drawing them, enabling them to repent and believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, (John 1:12-13; John 3:1-16; John 6:35-44; Ephesians 2:1-10) upon which they are justified, adopted, sanctified, and kept by His power through faith unto salvation. (John 10:26-29, John 17:9-15, Romans 8:15; Romans 8:30, Galatians 4:5; 1 Thessalonians 5:24, 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14, Hebrews 12:5-9, 1 Peter 1:3-5; 5:10; Jude 1, 24-25)

God the Son. We teach that Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, possesses all the divine attributes, and in these He is coequal, consubstantial (of the same substance), and coeternal with the Father and the Spirit. (Micah 5:2, Matthew 22:41-45, Matthew 28:20, Mark 2:5-12, John 1:1, John 1:14, John 1:18, John 2:23-25, John 5:17-23, John 5:26, John 6:33, John 8:23-24, John 8:58, John 10:30; John 12:39-41, John 14:9, John 17:5, John 17:24, John 20:30-31, Acts 3:14, Philippians 3:20-21, Colossians 2:9, Titus 2:13, Hebrews 1:2-13, 1 John 5:20)

We teach that God the Father created all things without pre-existing material according to His own will, through His Son, Jesus Christ, by whom all things continue in existence and in operation. (John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:2)

We teach that in the incarnation (God becoming man) Christ surrendered only the prerogatives of deity but nothing of the divine essence, either in degree or kind. (Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:9) In His incarnation, the eternally existing second Person of the Trinity accepted all the essential characteristics of humanity and so became the God Man. (John 1:1-3; John 1:14; John 1:18; Galatians 4:4, Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:9) Although he was fully man, since he was also fully God, Jesus was without sin as to his nature, unable to sin in principle, and did not sin in fact. (Luke 1:35, John 18:38, John 19:4,6, Acts 3:14, Romans 8:3, 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 2:14-17, Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26, 1 Peter 2:21-24)

We teach that Jesus Christ, the God Man, represents humanity and deity in indivisible oneness forever. (Micah 5:2; John 5:23; 14:6-11; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:1-3)

We teach that our Lord Jesus Christ was virgin born; (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:22-25; Luke 1:26-35) that He was God incarnate; (John 1:1, John 1:14) and that the purpose of the incarnation was to glorify God, (John 17:4) reveal God, (John 1:18) redeem men, (John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 1 Peter 1:18-19) and rule over God’s kingdom. (Psalm 2:7-9; Isaiah 9:6-7; Philippians 2:9-11)

We teach that our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through the shedding of His blood (Ephesians 1:7) and sacrificial death on the cross. (Hebrews 10:12)

We teach that His death was voluntary, (John 10:11; John 10:17-18; Philippians 2:8; 1 John 3:16) vicarious, substitutionary, (Leviticus 17:11; Isaiah 53:4-11; Matthew 20:28; Romans 5:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 2:9; Hebrews 9:28; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18) propitiatory, (Romans 3:24-25; Romans 5:8; Hebrews 2:17; Hebrews 7:27; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 John 4:9-10) and redemptive. (John 10:15; Romans 3:24-25; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:13-14; Titus 2:13-14; Hebrews 9:12-14; 1 Peter 1:18-19)

We teach that on the basis of the efficacy of the perfect life and substitutionary death of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Romans 5:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 7:26-27) the believing sinner is freed from the penalty and power of sin, (1 Peter 2:21-24; Romans 6:6-18; Romans 8:1) and at the final revelation of Jesus Christ will be delivered from the very presence of sin; (Romans 8:29; 1 Corinthians 15:49; Philippians 3:21; 1 John 3:2) and that he is declared righteous, given eternal life, and adopted into the family of God. (Romans 3:24-26; Romans 5:8-9; Galatians 3:24-26; Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 9:12; Hebrews 9:15; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 4:9-10; 1 John 5:11-13)

We teach that our justification is made certain and secure by Jesus Christ’s literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:38-46; Acts 2:30-32; Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:17)

We teach that in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, God confirmed the deity of His Son and gave proof that He has accepted the atoning work of Christ on the cross. (Acts 2:24-36; Acts 17:31; John 20:27-28; Romans 1:4; Ephesians 1:20-23; Philippians 2:9-11) Jesus’ bodily resurrection moves believers from the realm of the flesh to the realm of the Spirit and guarantees a future bodily resurrection to life for all believers. (John 5:26-29; John 14:19; Romans 6:4-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Ephesians 2:5-7; Philippians 3:20-21; Colossians 1:13; Colossians 2:8-15)

We teach that Christ is now ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He mediates as our Advocate and High Priest. (Ephesians 1:20-23; Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 4:14-16; Hebrews 7:25-26; Hebrews 9:24; Hebrews 10:12; 1 John 2:1)

We teach that Jesus Christ will receive the church unto Himself at the rapture, (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) and returning with His church in glory, will return a second time to the earth to establish His millennial kingdom for a thousand years. (Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 20:1-6)

We teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is the One through whom God will judge all mankind: (John 5:22-23; Acts 17:31) believers; (1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10) living inhabitants of the earth at His glorious return; (Matthew 25:31-46) and the unbelieving dead at the Great White Throne. (Revelation 20:11-15) As the mediator between God and man, (1 Timothy 2:5) the head of His body the church, (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18) and the coming universal King who will reign on the throne of David, (Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:31-33) He is the final judge of all who reject Him as Lord and Savior. (Matthew 25:14-46; Acts 17:30-31; John 5:22-30)

God the Holy Spirit

We teach that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, eternal, un-derived, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity including intellect, (1 Corinthians 2:10-13) emotions, (Ephesians 4:30) will, (1 Corinthians 12:11) eternality, (Hebrews 9:14) omnipresence,(Psalm 139:7-10) omniscience, (Isaiah 40:13-14) omnipotence, (Romans 15:13) and truthfulness. (John 16:13) In all the divine attributes He is coequal and consubstantial with the Father and the Son. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; 28:25-26; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 10:15-17)

We teach that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to execute the divine will with relation to all mankind. We recognize His sovereign activity in creation, (Genesis 1:2) the incarnation, (Matthew 1:18) the written revelation, (2 Peter 1:20-21) and the work of salvation.(John 3:5-8)

We teach that the work of the Holy Spirit in this age began at Pentecost when He came from the Father as promised by Christ (John 14:16-17; John 15:26) to initiate and complete the building of the Body of Christ, which is His church. (1 Corinthians 12:13) The broad scope of His divine activity includes convicting the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; (John 16:7-11) glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ; (John 16:13-15) and transforming believers into the image of Christ. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

We teach that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural and sovereign agent in regeneration, (John 3:5-8; Titus 3:5) immersing or placing (baptizing) all believers into the Body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:13) The Holy Spirit also indwells,(Romans 8:9) sanctifies,(Romans 15:16; 1 Peter 1:2) instructs, (1 Corinthians 2:12-13) empowers them for service, (Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:19-20; Ephesians 3:20-21) and seals them unto the day of redemption. (Ephesians 1:13-14)

We teach that the Holy Spirit is the divine Teacher, who guided the apostles and prophets into all truth as they committed to writing God’s revelation, the Bible. (John 16:13; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 John 2:20, 1 John 2:27) Every believer possesses the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit from the moment of salvation, and it is the duty of all those born of the Spirit to be filled with (controlled by) the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)

We teach that the Holy Spirit dispenses and administers spiritual gifts to the Church. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) The Holy Spirit glorifies neither Himself nor His gifts by flamboyant displays, but He does glorify Christ by implementing His work of redeeming the lost and building up believers in the faith. (John 16:13-14; 1 Corinthians 12:3; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; 1 Peter 1:2)

We teach, in this respect, that while God the Holy Spirit is sovereign in the bestowing of His gifts for the perfecting of the saints today, (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles in the beginning days of the Church were for the purpose of pointing to and authenticating the Apostles and prophets as revealers of divine truth, and thus were never intended to be characteristic of the lives of believers. (1 Corinthians 13:8-10; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Hebrews 2:1-4)

We teach that man was directly and immediately created by God in His image and likeness. (Genesis 1:26-28; Genesis 2:7) Man was created free of sin with a rational nature, intelligence, volition, self-determination, and moral responsibility to God. (Genesis 2:15-25; James 3:9)

We teach that God’s intention in the creation of man was that man should glorify God, enjoy God’s fellowship, live his life in the will of God, and by this accomplish God’s purpose for man in the world. (Genesis 1:26-30; Isaiah 43:7; Colossians 1:16; Revelation 4:11)

We teach that in Adam’s sin of disobedience to the revealed will and Word of God,(Genesis 2:16-17; 1 Timothy 2:13-14) man lost his innocence; (Genesis 3:7-13) incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death; (Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:1-19) became subject to the wrath of God; (John 3:36) and became inherently corrupt and utterly incapable of choosing or doing that which is acceptable to God apart from divine grace. With no recuperative powers to enable him to recover himself, man is hopelessly lost. (Job 14:4; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 13:23; Matthew 7:16-18; John 6:44; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12-19; Romans 8:7-8; 1 Corinthians 2:14; 1 Corinthians 4:7; Ephesians 2:1-3) Man’s salvation is thereby wholly of God’s grace through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:5-16; Romans 3:23-24; 6:23; Ephesians 2:4-9; Colossians 2:13-15)

We teach that salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the completed work of redemption by Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works. (John 1:12-13; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19)


We teach that election is the act of God by which, before the foundation of the world, He chose in Christ those for whom Christ would die as their substitute; these and these alone, He would sovereignly redeem, call, regenerate, draw, reconcile, justify, save, sanctify, and glorify. (Deuteronomy 10:14-15; Psalm 65:4; John 6:44; Romans 8:28-30 Romans 8:33; Ephesians 1:4-14; Colossians 3:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; 2 Timothy 2:10; Titus 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1-2)

We teach that sovereign election does not contradict or negate the responsibility of man to repent and trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (Ezekiel 18:23; Ezekiel 18:32; Ezekiel 33:11; Mark 1:15; John 3:18-19; John 3:36; John 5:40; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Revelation 22:17) Nevertheless, since sovereign grace includes the means (repentance and faith) of receiving the gift of salvation as well as the gift itself, sovereign election will result in what God determines. All whom the Father calls to Himself will come in faith and all who come in faith the Father will receive. (John 6:37-40; John 6:44-47; Acts 13:48; 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5; James 4:8-10)

We teach that the unmerited favor and enabling power that God grants to totally depraved sinners is not related to any good works or initiative of their own part, nor to God’s anticipation or prior knowledge of what they might do by their own will, but is solely of His sovereign grace and mercy. (Matthew 11:27; Matthew 22:14; Acts 13:48; Acts 18:27; Romans 9:6-23; Romans 10:20; Romans 11:4-6; 1 Corinthians 1:27-29; Ephesians 1:4-7; Philippians 1:29; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:3-7; 1 Peter 1:2; Revelation 13:8; Revelation 17:8)

We teach that election should not be looked upon as based merely on abstract sovereignty. God is truly sovereign but He exercises this sovereignty in harmony with His other attributes, especially His omniscience, justice, holiness, wisdom, grace, and love. (Exodus 33:19; Deuteronomy 7:6-7; Romans 9:11-16) This sovereignty will always exalt the glory of God in a manner totally consistent with His character as revealed in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 11:25-28; 2 Timothy 1:9)

We teach that while it is impossible for finite humanity to harmonize God’s sovereign election of sinners to salvation and man’s responsibility to believe the gospel for salvation, it is the clear teaching of the Word of God and it is perfectly resolved in the infinite mind of God. (Romans 11:33-36)


We teach that regeneration is a supernatural work of the Holy Spirit by which the eternal life of God and a new nature are given to elect sinners. (John 3:3-7; John 5:24; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 2:1-5; Ephesians 4:24; Colossians 3:3-4; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:1-3; 2 Peter 1:4; 1 John 5:11) This “new birth” is instantaneous and is accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit through the instrumentality of the Word of God. (Ezekiel 37:1-14; John 5:24; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23) Enabled by the Holy Spirit, regeneration also causes the sinner to be repentant and to trust solely in Jesus Christ for salvation. (Ezekiel 36:25-27; John 1:12-13; John 3:1-16; 1 John 2:29; 1 John 3:9; 1 John 4:7; 1 John 5:1)


We teach that repentance is a necessary requirement for salvation. (Ezekiel 18:32; Isaiah 55:6-7; Mark 1:15-17; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Luke 13:3; 1 Thessalonians 1:9; 1 John 1:9) Repentance is a gift of God’s grace to elect sinners that makes them willing by the Holy Spirit to confess their sins to God and forsake them in response to the gospel proclamation. (Proverbs 28:13; Acts 11:18; 2 Timothy 2:24-26) Repentance involves a change of mind about sin, leading to a change of emotion, resulting in a change of the will, in which the sinner willingly turns away from sin and pursues the righteousness of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:3-6; Luke 9:23-25; Luke 14:26-33; Luke 18:9-14; 2 Corinthians 7:10-11)

We teach that those who are truly saved will bear fruit in keeping with repentance and manifest a life of continual repentance. (Matthew 3:8; Psalm 32:5; Proverbs 28:13; Luke 9:23; James 5:16; 1 John 1:9)


We teach that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is a necessary requirement for salvation. (John 1:12; John 3:16; John 3:36; Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Hebrews 11:6; 1 John 5:13) Saving faith is a confident belief and willing surrender to the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. (John 3:14-18; Romans 10:9-10; Hebrews 11:1) It involves the mind understanding the truth of the gospel; it involves the emotions giving full approval to the truth of the gospel; and it involves the will, in which the sinner willingly chooses to trust in the truth of the gospel and surrender to Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord and the only hope of eternal salvation. (Matthew 5:6; Matthew 7:24-27; John 6:35; Romans 10:9; Galatians 2:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 11:1; Hebrews 11:3; 1 Peter 1:8-9; 1 John 3:23)

We teach that saving faith, like repentance is a gift of God’s grace to elect sinners that makes them willing by the Holy Spirit to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ in response to the gospel proclamation. (John 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-9; Philippians 1:29; Romans 10:17)

We teach that saving faith occurs simultaneously with repentance and that it is impossible to have one without the other. (Isaiah 55:6-7; Mark 1:15-17; Acts 3:19; Acts 26:20; 1 Thessalonians 1:9)

We teach that genuine saving faith is evidenced by good works in the life of the believer. (Acts 26:20; Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:14; Titus 3:8; James 2:18) These good works will be exhibited to the extent that the believer submits to the control of the Holy Spirit in his life through faithful obedience to the Word of God. (Ephesians 5:17-21; Philippians 2:12b; Colossians 3:16; 2 Peter 1:4-10) This obedience causes the believer to be increasingly conformed to the image of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 3:18) Such a conformity is climaxed in the believer’s glorification at Christ’s coming. (Romans 8:17; 2 Peter 1:4; 1 John 3:2-3)


We teach that a sinner who repents and believes in Jesus Christ, confessing Him as sovereign Lord, is instantaneously justified. (Romans 3:21-24; Romans 4:3; Romans 5:1; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

We teach that justification before God is an act of God (Romans 8:30; Romans 8:33) by which He declares righteous those who, through faith in Christ, repent of their sins (Luke 13:3; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 11:18; Romans 2:4; Galatians 2:16; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Isaiah 55:6-7) and confess Him as sovereign Lord. (Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 12:3; 2 Corinthians 4:5; Philippians 2:11) This righteousness is apart from any virtue or work of man (Romans 3:20; Romans 3:28; Romans 4:6; Galatians 2:16) and involves the imputation of our sins to Christ (Isaiah 53:4; Isaiah 53:11-12; Colossians 2:14; Hebrews 9:28; 1 Peter 2:24) and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to us. (Romans 4:6; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21) By this means God is both “just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:26)


We teach that every believer is sanctified (set apart) unto God by justification and is therefore declared to be holy and identified as a saint. This sanctification is positional and instantaneous and should not be confused with progressive sanctification. This sanctification has to do with the believer’s standing, not his present walk or condition. (Acts 20:32; 1 Corinthians 1:2, 1 Corinthians 1:30; 1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 2:11; Hebrews 3:1; Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 10:14; Hebrews 13:12; 1 Peter 1:2)

We teach that there is also by the work of the Holy Spirit a progressive sanctification by which the state of the believer is brought closer to the standing the believer enjoys positionally through justification. Through obedience to the Word of God and the empowering of the Holy Spirit, the believer is able to live a life of increasing holiness in conformity to the will of God, becoming more and more like our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 17:17; John 17:19; Romans 6:1-22; Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 2:12-13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)

We teach that every saved person is involved in a daily conflict—the new creation in Christ doing battle against the flesh—but full provision is made for victory through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit operating in us by faith in God’s promises. (2 Peter 1:2-11) The struggle nevertheless stays with the believer all through this earthly life and is never completely ended until Christ’s return. (1 Corinthians 15:42-49; Philippians 3:21; 1 John 3:2)

We teach that total sinlessness is not possible in the life of this flesh, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin. (Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 4:22-24; Philippians 3:12-16; Colossians 3:5-11; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1 John 3:5-9)

Security & Assurance

We teach that once saved, all the redeemed are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 5:24; John 6:37-40; John 10:27-30; Romans 5:9-10; Romans 8:1; Romans 8:31-39; 1 Corinthians 1:4-8; Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 13:5; 1 Peter 1:5; Jude 24)

We teach that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the internal testimony of the Spirit; (Romans 8:16) through the external testimony of God’s Word; (1 John 5:13) and through their continual obedience to it. (2 Peter 1:2-10) However, the Bible clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion for sinful living and carnality. (Romans 6:15-22; Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13, Galatians 5:25-26; Titus 2:11-14)


We teach that out of love for Jesus and deep gratitude for the undeserved grace of God granted to us, all believers should live in such a manner as to demonstrate our love to God and so as not to bring reproach upon our Lord and Savior. (Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 5:9)

We teach that believers should be separated unto our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12; Hebrews 12:1-2) and should be separated from any association with religious apostasy, and any sinful practice that is contrary to the Word of God, so as not to bring reproach upon our Lord and Savior, tempt another believer to sin, or display a poor testimony of Christ to the world. (1 Corinthians 5:9-13; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9-11)

We teach that believers in a spirit of love and humility should avoid any sinful practice, any preference, and any matter of conscience that would violate or bind another believer’s conscience or put a stumbling block before them. (Romans 12:9-10; Romans 14:13; 1 Corinthians 8:13; Philippians 2:1-6)

We teach that the Christian life is a life of obedient righteousness that reflects the teaching of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:2-12) and a continual pursuit of holiness. (Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 John 3:1-10) The practical holiness of the believer is a matter of grace-enabled faith and obedience to the Word of God lived out in the world and in the community of the Church. (Galatians 6:1-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Titus 2:11-14)

The Universal Church. We teach that all who are converted to faith in Jesus Christ, are immediately placed by Christ through the Holy Spirit into one universal, united, spiritual Body, the Church, (1 Corinthians 12:12-13) the Bride of Christ, (2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:23-32; Revelation 19:7-8) of which Christ is the Head. (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 4:15; Colossians 1:18)

We teach that the formation of the Church, the Body of Christ, began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-21, Acts 2:38-47) and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His own at the rapture. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We teach that the Church is a unique spiritual organism designed by Christ, made up of all born again believers in this present age. (Ephesians 2:11-3:6) The Church did not exist in the Old Covenant and is not comprised of ethnic Jews exclusively or national Israel. (1 Corinthians 10:32) The Church is a mystery not revealed until this New Covenant age, and is comprised of believing Jews and Gentiles together in one body. (Ephesians 3:1-6; Ephesians 5:32)

The Local Church. We teach that the establishment and continuity of local gathered churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:23, Acts 14:27; Acts 20:17, Acts 20:28; Galatians 1:2; Philippians 1:1; 1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:1) and that the members of the one spiritual Body are to form a community together in local visible assemblies. (1 Corinthians 11:18-20; Hebrews 10:25)

The Local Church

Leadership. We teach that the one supreme authority for the Church is Christ whose authority is mediated through the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 11:3; Ephesians 1:22; Colossians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 2:12-16; Ephesians 4:11-16; 2 Timothy 4:1-2) Church leadership, gifts, order, discipline, and worship are all appointed by His sovereignty as found in the Scriptures. The biblically designated officers in the assembly are elders (also called overseers, bishops, pastors, shepherds, and pastor-teachers (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11) and deacons (servants), both of whom must meet biblical qualifications. (1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-5)

We teach that the elders lead or govern as shepherds under Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:12; 1 Timothy 5:17-22) and, as a body, have His authority in directing the church. The congregation is to follow their example, submit to their leadership, and pray for them. (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; Hebrews 13:7; Hebrews 13:17-18)

We teach that the deacons are the servants in the church and that they are to serve in capacities delegated to them by the elders. (Acts 6:1-6; 1 Timothy 3:8-13)

Purpose. We teach that the purpose of the Church is to glorify God (Ephesians 3:21) by building itself up in the faith, (Ephesians 4:13-16) by instruction of the Word, (2 Timothy 2:2, 2 Timothy 2:15; 2 Timothy 3:16-17) by fellowship, (Acts 2:47; 1 John 1:3) by prayer, (Acts 2:42; 1 Timothy 2:1-2) by keeping the ordinances, (Luke 22:19; Acts 2:38-42) by advancing and communicating the gospel to the whole world, (Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:42) and by establishing the character of Christ in its members. (Ephesians 4:13-16; 1 John 2:6; Col.1:28)

We teach the importance of discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Timothy 2:2) and mutual accountability of all believers to each other. (Matthew 18:1-14; Romans 12:1-21)

We teach the need for corrective discipline of members of the congregation in unrepentant sin. This is to be done in accordance with the standards of Scripture and with the goal of restoring the member and preserving the purity of the church. (Matthew 18:15-22; Acts 5:1-11; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15; 1 Timothy 1:19-20; Titus 1:10-16)

We teach the autonomy of the local church, free from any external authority or control, with the right of self-government and freedom from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations. (Acts 14:23; Acts 20:17; Acts 20:28; Titus 1:5)

We teach that it is scriptural for true churches to cooperate with each other for the presentation and propagation of the faith. Each local church, however, through its elders and their interpretation and application of Scripture, should be the sole judge of the measure and method of its cooperation. The elders should determine all other matters of membership, policy, discipline, benevolence, and government as well. (Acts 15:19 Acts 15:31; Acts 20:28; 1 Corinthians 5:4; 1 Corinthians 5:7; 1 Corinthians 5:13; 1 Peter 5:1-4)

We teach the calling of all believers to the work of service. (Matthew 20:24-28; Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 15:58; Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 4:12; Revelation 22:12)

We teach that the Church is the primary vehicle God is using in the present age to accomplish His purpose in the world. To that end, He gives the Church spiritual gifts. First, He gives men chosen for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:7-12) Second, He gives unique and special spiritual abilities to each member of the Body of Christ. (Romans 12:5-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-31; 1 Peter 4:10-11)

Spiritual Gifts. We teach that while all believers in the local church are equal before God in their person and standing in Jesus Christ, (Galatians 3:28) they differ in their God-ordained roles, (1 Corinthians 11:3; Ephesians 5:22-23; Ephesians 6:1-4; 1 Timothy 2:9-15) and their spiritual giftedness. (Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:4)

We teach that every believer receives a unique blend of the spiritual gifts. (1 Corinthians 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:11) It is the responsibility of every believer to use their gifts for the purpose of edifying the Church and glorifying God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:10-11)

We teach that there were two kinds of gifts given the early church: miraculous gifts of divine revelation and healing, given temporarily in the apostolic era for the purpose of confirming the authenticity of the Apostles’ message; (Hebrews 2:3-4; 2 Corinthians 12:12) and ministering gifts, given to equip believers for edifying one another.

We teach that because the New Testament revelation is complete, Scripture becomes the sole test of the authenticity of a man’s message and confirming gifts of a miraculous nature are no longer necessary to validate a man or his message. (1 Corinthians 13:8-12) Miraculous gifts can even be counterfeited by Satan so as to deceive even believers. (1 Corinthians 13:13-14:12; Revelation 13:13-14)

We teach that the only gifts in operation today are those non-revelatory equipping gifts given for edification. (Romans 12:6-8)

We teach that no one possesses the special gift of healing today but that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith and will answer in accordance with His own perfect will for the sick, suffering, and afflicted. (Luke 18:1-6; John 5:7-9; 2 Corinthians 12:6-10; James 5:13-16; 1 John 5:14-15)

Ordinances. We teach that two ordinances have been committed to the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper, (Acts 2:38-42) neither of which are necessary for salvation.

We teach that Christian baptism by immersion into water (Acts 8:36-39) is the solemn and beautiful testimony of a believer professing his faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and his union with Him in death to sin and resurrection to a new life. (Romans 6:1-11 It is also a sign of fellowship and identification with the visible Body of Christ. (Acts 2:41-42)

We teach that the Lord’s Supper is a regular practice of the corporate church whereby the death of Christ is commemorated and proclaimed as the only sacrifice for sin and as the only means of forgiveness and entrance into the New Covenant until He comes. (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

We teach that the Lord’s Supper should always be preceded by solemn self-examination and taken with thanksgiving and joy in the heart. (1 Corinthians 11:23-32)

We teach that whereas the elements of communion are only representative of the flesh and blood of Christ, the Lord’s Supper is nevertheless an actual communion with the risen Christ who is present in a unique way, fellowshipping with His people corporately. (1 Corinthians 10:16)

Holy Angels. We teach that angels are created beings and are therefore not to be worshiped. Although they are a higher order of creation than man, they are created to worship and serve God, fulfill His purposes, and minister to God’s people according to His will. (Isaiah 6:3; Matthew 18:10; Luke 2:9 14; Hebrews 1:6 Hebrews 1:7, Hebrews 1:14; Hebrews 2:6-7; Revelation 5:11; Revelation 5:14; Revelation 19:10; Revelation 22:9)

Fallen Angels. We teach that Satan is a created angel and the author of sin. He incurred the judgment of God by rebelling against his Creator, (Isaiah 14:12 17; Ezekiel 28:11-19) by taking numerous angels with him in his fall, (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 12:1; Revelation 12:14) and by introducing sin into the human race by his temptation of Eve. (Genesis 3:1-15)

We teach that Satan is the open and declared enemy of God and His truth. (Isaiah 14:13-14; Matthew 4:1; Matthew 4:11)

We teach that even though Satan has been defeated through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, (Romans 16:20, Hebrews 2:14) he is alive and active in the world today as the enemy and deceiver of believers, (1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 12:10) the father of lies,(John 8:44) and the prince of this world. (John 12:31; Ephesians 2:2; 1 John 5:19)

We teach that while it is possible for unbelievers to be indwelt by Satan and his demons, (John 13:27; Luke 8:2, Luke 8:26-39) it is not possible for believers because they are indwelt by the Spirit of God. (Matthew 12:22-30; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 1 John 4:4)

We teach that Satan will be eternally punished in the lake of fire. (Isaiah 14:12; Isaiah 14:17; Ezekiel 28:11; Ezekiel 28:19; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10)

Death. We teach that physical death involves no loss of our immaterial consciousness; (Revelation 6:9-11) that the soul of the redeemed passes immediately into the presence of Christ; (Luke 23:43; Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:8) that there is a separation of soul and body, (Philippians 1:21-24) and that, for the redeemed, such separation will continue until the rapture, (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17) which initiates the first resurrection, (Revelation 20:4-6) when our soul and body will be reunited to be glorified forever with our Lord. (Philippians 3:21; 1 Corinthians 15:35-44, 1 Corinthians 15:50-54) Until that time, the souls of the redeemed in Christ remain in joyful fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:8)

We teach the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, (John 6:39; Romans 8:10-11, 19-23; 2 Corinthians 4:14) and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Daniel 12:2; John 5:29; Revelation 20:13-15)

We teach that any concept of annihilation of the wicked or anything less than a literal and eternal punishment in hell of the wicked is unscriptural. (Matthew 25:41-46; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-12; Revelation 20:10-15; Revelation 14:9-13)

We teach that the souls of the unsaved at death are kept under punishment until the second resurrection, (Luke 16:19-26; Revelation 20:13-15) when the soul and the resurrection body will be united. (John 5:28-29) They shall then appear at the Great White Throne judgment (Revelation 20:11-15) and shall be cast into hell, the lake of fire, (Matthew 25:41-46) cut off from the eternal life of God forever in an eternal conscious punishment. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:41-46; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9)

The Rapture of the Church. We teach the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ before the seven-year tribulation (1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10) to translate His church from this earth (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-5:11) and, between this event and His glorious return with His saints, to reward believers according to their works. (1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10)

We teach that believers should comfort and encourage one another with the truth of the rapture, (1 Thessalonians 4:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:11) pursue righteous and holy living, (1 Corinthians 15:58; Titus 2:11-12) and be filled with hope and expectation. (John 14:1-3; Titus 2:13)

The Tribulation Period. We teach that following the removal of the Church from the earth (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) the righteous judgments of God will be poured out upon an unbelieving world, (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 9:27; 12:1; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12; Revelation 6-16) and that these judgments will be climaxed by the return of Christ in glory to the earth. (Matthew 24:27-31; Matthew 25:31-46; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12; Revelation 19:11-21) At that time the Old Testament and tribulation saints will be raised and the living will be judged. (Daniel 12:2-3; Revelation 20:4-6) This period includes the seventieth week of Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27; Matthew 24:15-31; Matthew 25:31-46) as well as some of the judgments associated with “the day of the LORD.” (Joel 2:30-32; Joel 3:14; Zechariah 14:1; Malachi 4:1,5; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:2)

We teach that the future tribulation should cause believers to warn unbelievers to repent and believe the gospel, (Psalm 2:10-12; Joel 2:11-13; 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3; Revelation 3:3; Revelation 14:6-7; Revelation 16:15) live righteously, (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11; 2 Peter 3:10-14) glory in God’s justice and vindication of the righteous, (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; Revelation 14:15-18; Revelation 15:2-4; Revelation 16:5-7) and look forward to Jesus’ return and kingdom. (Revelation 11:15-18)

The Second Coming and the Millennial Reign. We teach that, after the tribulation period, Christ will come to earth to occupy the throne of David (Matthew 25:31; Luke 1:31-33; Acts 1:10-11; Acts 2:29-30) and establish His messianic kingdom for a thousand years. (Revelation 20:1-7) During this time the resurrected saints will reign with Him over Israel and all the nations of the earth. (Ezekiel 37:21-28; Daniel 7:17-22; Revelation 19:11-16) This reign will be preceded by the overthrow of the Antichrist and the False Prophet, and by the removal of Satan from the world. (Daniel 7:17-27; Revelation 20:1-7)

We teach that the kingdom itself will be the fulfillment of God’s promise to ethnic Israel (Isaiah 65:17-25; Ezekiel 37:21-28; Zechariah 8:1-17) to restore them to the land which they forfeited through their disobedience. (Deuteronomy 28:15-68) The result of their disobedience was that Israel was temporarily set aside (Matthew 21:43; Romans 11:1-26) but will again be awakened through repentance to enter into the land of blessing. (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ezekiel 36:22-32; Romans 11:25-29)

We teach that this time of our Lord’s reign will be characterized by harmony, justice, peace, righteousness, and long life, (Isaiah 11; 65:17-25; Ezekiel 36:33-38) and will be brought to an end with the release of Satan. (Revelation 20:7)

The Judgment of the Lost. We teach that following the release of Satan after the thousand-year reign of Christ, (Revelation 20:7) Satan will deceive the nations of the earth and gather them to battle against the saints and the beloved city of Jerusalem, at which time Satan and his army will be devoured by fire from heaven. (Revelation 20:9) Following this, Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10) whereupon Christ, who is the Judge of all men, (John 5:22) will resurrect and judge the great and small at the Great White Throne judgment. (Revelation 20:11-15)

We teach that this resurrection of the unsaved dead to judgment will be a physical resurrection, whereupon receiving their judgment they will be committed to an eternal conscious punishment in the lake of fire. (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:11-15)

Eternity. We teach that after the closing of the millennium, the temporary release of Satan, and the judgment of unbelievers, (2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:7-15) the saved will enter the eternal state of glory with God, after which the elements of this earth are to be dissolved (2 Peter 3:10) and replaced with a new earth wherein only righteousness dwells. (Ephesians 5:5; Revelation 20:15, Revelation 20:21-22)

Following this, the heavenly city will come down out of heaven (Revelation 21:2) and will be the dwelling place of the saints, where they will forever worship, serve, love, and enjoy fellowship with God and with one another. (Psalm 16:11; John 17:3; Revelation 7:15; Revelation 21; Revelation 22)

Our Lord Jesus Christ, having fulfilled His redemptive mission, will then deliver up the kingdom to God the Father (1 Corinthians 15:24-28) that in every realm the triune God may reign forever and ever. (1 Corinthians 15:28)
